The Whispery Candle Thing of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by April Chauers with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.9 billion Archivists enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Environment and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monaster. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Archivian economy, worth a remarkable 3,140 trillion oily seagull skulls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 397,488 oily seagull skulls, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,161,947 per year while the poor average 37,573, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and high school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Thirteen-Toed Ugly Dolphin Mutant Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Perspicacity of Orange.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 166,987th in the world and 322nd in Forest for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -11.4 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
